Nottingham Forest ask Birmingham City for more tickets as fans snap up 2,500 for St Andrew’s clash


Such has been the demand for Saturday’s trip to Birmingham City that Nottingham Forest have asked for extra tickets for the St Andrew’s clash.

The Reds’ initial allocation of 2,000 had been snapped up and over the weekend an extra 500 were sold, taking the travelling contingent inside the Gill Merrick Stand to 2,500.

Forest go into the game on the back of a thumping 4-0 win over QPR, their best victory under boss Mark Warburton, to make it four wins in their last six league outings, and will come up against a Birmingham side struggling under ex-Reds boss Steve Cotterill.

The latest from the City Ground

City have won just once under their new manager and that came in his first game in charge, a 1-0 home success over Cardiff City, but have yet to taste victory in the four since, losing three, drawing just once.

They sit in the bottom three, a point adrift of safety with Bolton and Sunderland beneath them.

Saturday’s travelling support could be the Reds’ second best so far in the Championship if they receive more tickets, with 3,145 going to Derby, while at Barnsley in August, 2,903 travelled to Oakwell on a balmy Tuesday evening.

Their best so far was the sold-out allocation of 4,036 supporters that went to Stamford Bridge in September to see Warburton’s men lose 5-1 at Chelsea in the Carabao Cup.
